Well, it happened. Here's what they released today at the Apple event:

- iPod Video. 30gig and 60gig. Even thinner than the normal iPod. Starting as low as $299. Supports MPEG-4 and H.264, and has video output.

- iTunes 6 and video store. You can now purchase music videos on iTunes for $1.99 each. Pixar will also put up short films on it. And you can purchase TV shows at $1.99 an episode. So far, Disney and ABC (which Disney owns) are on board.

- a new iMac with an iSight built-in and several video displaying/recording features, obviously targeted to the Windows Media Center crowd.

- a few other software goodies.

Apple is turning the world upside down right now. With the nano, the iTunes phone, and then all these new products, all in less than a month... wow. Their stock is going to fly today.

Those are sweet, I need a 60 gig iPod so maybe I'll snag one of those. Even though I'll prolly never use the video.

i know it may seem hard for you to do, but if you read the whole thread, i was getting people saying that i was wrong, that the video ipod was not going to come out today...looks like i DID tell you so...

Then it looks like maybe the Nano is for you, since that's now like the only non-video iPod. Haha.

I'll be buying one of the iPod Video's when I can. This is great for me. I've always been wanting a better way to carry my work around with me to show people. Oh, and they have video-out, so you don't just have to watch it on the small screen, you can also take your iPod over to someone's house or something, plug it into a TV, and view the movies at full quality.

I was one of the people saying that I didn't think it was going to come out, and obviously I was wrong. However, it's not like people were insulting you, so don't take it so personally. Some people, including myself, were just going by different rumors sites. This shit is all speculation, and there's no way anyone could have known for sure, yourself included. Unless your last name is Jobs, then I apologize. And want to marry into your family.
